For sale is a very rare Rhythm WSM Hamilton II Westminster Chime miniature grandfather mantle clock. The clock is tested and working, and is in fantastic physical condition. Model: WSM Hamilton II CRH215UR06. Overall condition: Nearly perfect, I believe the clock had only been displayed in a glass sales cabinet before being placed back into it's packaging. No cosmetic issue to the main body of the clock or the glass.
The back of the clock has a mark on the setting panel, there's a company reference sticker on the front of the battery access panel, and a dark mark on the front of the wood panel behind the pendulum. Defect: It appears that at some point in the past, a battery installed in the clock leaked. There is congealed battery acid on and around the battery compartment. Miraculously this appears to have had zero effect on the performance of the clock, as it still runs perfect when installed with fresh batteries. I cleaned a majority of the grime but there is still some residue inside (see pictures).
Performance: Tested and fully working. Both the chime and the clock itself are functioning without issue, the volume adjusts well and can get quite loud or whisper quiet. Requires 2 C batteries to run, batteries are not included with the sale. Other Notes: Extremely rare long-retired model. One of the few miniature grandfathers Rhythm has produced, a very unique design.The WSM movement allows you to select from Westminster chimes, 16 classical melodies, or 3 Christmas carols to play on the hour.
